Brauer Construction had piles of bedrock lying around its facility. In most cases, Brauer would take the bedrock and fit it into a hole that was large enough to accommodate the size. Sometimes, there are no holes to be filled, so the company would place them in a quarry.

That was when Jason Brauer, owner of Brauer Construction, searched the internet for a machine that would help him get rid of his bedrock. When he did his search, he found the MB crusher bucket and purchased it to crush the bedrock.

“We didn't crush before. We used the rock where I would see fit. We would dump the bedrock in a quarry, or bring it to a job and bury it. We would find bigger holes to fill,” Brauer said. “We were looking for a mobile machine [when we were searching the internet].”

Now, the excavation company crushes more than just bedrock. It crushes concrete and asphalt into fill and reusable material for roads and other projects.

“I bet you I've used it a quarter of the time I've had it, so that's twice a week,” Brauer said. “I like it. It's great. We get more jobs because we're doing things competitors can't do.”

“We're happy to help Jason at Brauer Construction. It's great to be a part of that solution for them,” said Miriano “Max” Ravazzolo, C.E.O. of MB America. “And it's even greater that we can provide them with a greener option to reuse the materials they crush.”
